#SanSousi learners stop principal from leaving

Cape Town – 2 September 2016

Learners from the San Sousi Girls High School in Newlands marched at 12pm from the Newlands pool to the school a few hundred metres away.They intended handing over a memorandum of grievances to the school principal,Charmaine Murray,who refused to receive the memorandum from the protesting students.The learners also read an open letter addressed to staff of the school.

Greeting the students instead was Western Cape Education Department chief director,Clifton Frolick.Frolick was there on behalf of Western Cape Education MEC,Debbie Schaefer,who directed all media queries to her spokesman Paddy Attwel,who was not available for comment either.

The learners then blocked all entrances to the school,in an attempt to bring the principal Charmaine Murray to address them and receive the memorandum,which contains grievances against the school’s hair policy.

Murray was escorted away by police officers,claiming her personal safety was at risk.Murray’s avoidance of them have angered both parents and learners,with one parent labelling her a “racist coward”.
